psychiatric disability. they have not found any sort of medicine but they're using search warrants to try and determine whether he was at any point receiving any sort of medicine, taking any sort of medication for that and that's the latest on the investigation and what's happening right now here in newtown, as well. >> okay. craig melvin, thank you. let's bring in harvard professor, david hemmingway who says we should treat mental health as a crisis. >>. you wrote the gun control debate often makes it look like there are only two options. take away people's guns or not. this is more like a harm-reduction strategy. recognize that there are a lot of guns out there and that reasonable gun policies can minimize the harm that comes from them. what do you mean by that and how exactly would it work? >> so, our big effort is to try to do prevention and prevent before the event happens. and so, what that means, the analogy we use is motor vehicles where you weighted in the old days to say here's an accident. it must be somebody did something wrong and mostly they did. and really wasn't unt
officials have told us they have seized a fair amount of evidence in this case. among that evidence, computer hard drives, some computers, as well. they're concerned that the evidence may be too badly damaged to be able to green any sort of useful information from it but they continue to try to do that. they have discovered that he was, the shooter, 20-year-old adam lanza, he was apparently based on the evidence an avid gamer. they have also been looking at various social networking sites and does not appear as if he had a large social footprint, as well. there's no evidence right now that he was under medical treatment for any sort of psychiatric disability. they have not found any sort of medicine but they're using search warrants to try and determine whether he was at any point receiving any sort of medicine, taking any sort of medication for that and that's the latest on the investigation and what's happening right now here in newtown, as well. >> okay. craig melvin, thank you. let's bring in harvard professor, david hemmingway who says we should treat mental health as a crisis.
five dates over his u.s. tour out of respect for the those lost in littleton. but the singer says artists like himself are not the ones to blame. >> though i disagree with michael moore on just about everything including the premise of his movie, on that point, i do agree and i think we have this conversation about the culture and his whole point in this was to say, well, if we're going to blame marilyn manson who the shooters liked, why not blame bowling. they did that that morning, as well. every time this happens we try to grapple with what we can do, how to make sense of it and we go to the culture and every time we just don't come up with satisfying answers so i understand the impulse but i just want to remind people that it's not a new debate about violence in our culture. we have it often and usually we come up empty. >> well, and there is a tendency i think for everybody to apply their pet, pet issue to what the problem is here and mike huckabee saying it's taking god out of the schools and people want to see it through the lens but i want to say i'm glad that we are havin
the constitutional impossibility of eliminating all guns, prohibition hasn't proven to be useful in eliminating much of anything. including illicit drugs and, yes, illegal weapons. there are mass shootings even in countries with the strictest of gun laws and someone intent on killing a lot of people doesn't need a gun to do it. so if we know that banning certain guns won't stop gun violence, that gun-free zones don't protect the people inside them, and that eliminating all guns is impossible and infective, then what workable solutions are gun control advocates actually bringing to want to have a real conversation? a real conversation has to start with the broken mental health system that's failing our young people. we have to talk about teen suicide. there are 12 a day. depression and bullying have to be discussed. we have to talk about the over medicating of our children. a lack of access to health care, and resources. instead, we get the knee-jerk call for more gun laws on the left and the knee-jerk defense of guns on the right. that's not a conversation. that's a stalemate. we will have to change
